Hi All,

In the wake of bad publicity from the Backblaze blog:


about disk reliability, Seagate is offering to give a technical presentation 
on disk drives, their product line stratification, and future product 
roadmap. After their acquisition of Xyratex, this now now includes a 
number of storage 'solutions' aka large boxes running various filesystems 
as well as JBODish products.  This may require an NDA.

I'm trying to judge what the interest level is so I can reserve an appro 
room.  If you would be interested in hearing this presentation and or 
asking questions, please give me shout and I'll try to line up the 
speakers and place (probably in 2-3 weeks)

(Apologies for list overlap)
